Hi all,

it's some time ago since I uploaded music the last time. So maybe some things had changed and I hadn't got them. Or maybe I simply forgot. So a few questions here.

1. I cannot login to the FTP-server audio-uploads.archive.org with my patron-e-mail-address as I used to. Has the handling changed there? Or is it the wrong server? Or is it the wrong way?

2. I remember that it is possible to modify details in album-publications, such as keywords and accompanying text. Where can I do it?

3. Where's the manual anyway?

Thanks for help in advance.

Guido

You should be using http://www.archive.org/create/ nowadays - try that! Also, if you have existing uploads, just log on under your old name and email address, and hit the small 'edit' button next to your item on its details page, and you can edit.

Hope this helps!
Simon.

[EDIT: My bad - http://www.archive.org/create/ - I missed the slash!]

I just tried uploading a mix I made using www.archive.org/create/ but when I try to drag and drop my file into the FTP directory window created for it I get a 550 error?

Hi Simon,

I just tried.

Host-name: www.archive.org/create
Port: ftp
User-name: new-email-adress@so-healthy-music.com
PW: patron-password

Error message: 500 Host not found (Winsock error #11001)

Also interesting if I try with my old e-mail address: 500 No Data (Winsock error #11004)

Still puzzled.

Thanks for help.
Guido

You have to put a "/" after "create": www.archive.org/create/

There are instructions here:

(Incidentally there's a link to them in the "Welcome to Netlabels" section at the top of the main page.)

You have to go to www.archive.org/create/ in your web browser, not in your FTP client. Upload servers seem to be randomly allocated nowadays, so you have to go through the process before it will tell you what FTP details to use.
